Cardinal & Gold Scholarships
The Cardinal & Gold Scholarship program, which began in 2011, stresses the importance of creating Iowa State University legacies with financial support from Iowa State alumni and friends for current, first-generation ISU students from the state of Iowa. For the 2013-2014 academic year, the Association awarded scholarships to a total of seven students.
The ISU Alumni Association Cardinal & Gold Scholarship annually awards $1,000 each to six juniors (as defined by credit hours) representing each of Iowa State’s six undergraduate colleges (depending on qualified applicants). All recipients must be residents of the state of Iowa. The Association’s goal is to endow all six scholarships using a portion of the proceeds from the Cardinal & Gold Gala as well as direct donations from individual donors.
The Lora & Russ Talbot ISU Alumni Association Cardinal & Gold College of Veterinary Medicine Scholarship was established by the Talbots in 2013. Each year, this endowed scholarship awards $1,000 to a third-year Veterinary Medicine student who graduated from a high school in Iowa.
If you would like to have additional information about the Association’s scholarship program, make a donation, or endow a Cardinal & Gold Scholarship in your name, please contact Katie Lickteig at firstname.lastname@example.org. We greatly appreciate your support of this high priority and significant initiative. You are helping to make a difference in the lives of our students.
